I first tasted this delightful summery drink this past month while I was visiting some family in Tampa. I spent the entire day out on the water, thanks to Tampa Bay Water Bike Co., and cooled off with this incredibly divine, taste bud tantalizing, ruby red delicious creation. This is as much a summer drink as Bud Light is American. It's fresh and summery and absolutely perfect, I loved it so much I asked the bartender (at The Sail Pavilion) for the recipe! Go make one, grab your bikini, and lay out in the gorgeous sunshine while sipping on this baby. You can thank me later.
Ripe red grapefruit
Ruby Red Vodka, I used Absolut
Sparkling water or sprite
Fill two glasses up with ice.
Juice the grapefruit, either by hand or with a juicer, and divide the juice equally into the glasses with ice.
In each glass add a shot of ruby red vodka, a splash of triple sec, and top off with sparkling water or sprite, to your liking.
Give each glass a little stir before serving.
